Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) February 15, 2014
The Reunion Group and Total Defense, Inc. have entered into an agreement to develop a new suite of digital protection services to mitigate cybercrime for individuals and families. The companies will integrate The Reunion Group’s identity theft, child social monitoring and web monitoring products into Total Defense’s cloud-based Internet Security platform. The new suite of services will be branded Total Defense Alert! and marketed through Total Defense’s distribution network.
“Today we live in an unprecedented age of information. Shopping, banking, communicating - many of life’s important activities have been forever changed and improved by the digital world. The unfortunate reality is this - as the digital space matures – the opportunity to perpetrate criminal activity increases just as it does offline. Our alliance with Total Defense is intended to help people protect themselves from the growing risks of cybercrime and data fraud,” said Riad Shalaby, Chief Executive Officer of The Reunion Group.
Cybercrimes are willful offenses committed against individuals and businesses, with criminal motivation to cause financial harm. Criminal activities of this nature are easily disguised as computer viruses and fraudulent websites, in unauthorized software or in email.
“The virtual world is uniquely global. Cybercriminals are not restricted by physical borders. They can live, work and wreak havoc from remote, offshore locations not bound by our rules of law. To address this, we sought an alliance with an organization possessing both global reach and a deep understanding of the space. Total Defense is an ideal business partner. They have complementary products. They are technology driven, maintain a robust distribution network and, most importantly, possess the track record to augment our business,” Shalaby continued.
Total Defense is the leading provider of content and endpoint security from the cloud. The company keeps organizations and individuals safe from cybercrime, malware and digital threats. “We are excited to integrate The Reunion Group’s innovative product suite. They will provide us with credit reports and scores, Internet scanning and child social monitoring. These are important products and they will round out our consumer portfolio. They will be bundled cost-effectively and seamlessly incorporated into our consumer platform,” said Lawrence Guerin, Executive Vice President, Consumer at Total Defense.
